Property Description

Exquisite Fifth Avenue Penthouse with 3350 sq. ft. of Private Manicured Rooftop Terrace, Views of Central Park and beyond Perched on the top floor of an elegant Emery Roth-designed co-op sits this one-of-a-kind penthouse, a customized duplex apartment that blends a sublime mid-Century modern aesthetic with expansive outdoor space and unobstructed views of Central Park and the west side skyline. Luxurious and refined, the home boasts 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a central powder room, and spacious den/staff room. On the lower level of the home, residents are greeted by a grand double-height foyer with a chic bronze staircase with leather-clad floating steps. Formal living and dining rooms sit on either side of the foyer. The living room has access to a wraparound terrace with park views and boasts built-in mobile wall displays that conceal a hidden TV. The 10-person dining room leads into a windowed kitchen equipped with gray quartz countertops, custom Informed Studios cabinets, and fully-integrated high-end appliances from Gaggenau, Miele, and Sub-Zero. Just past the kitchen is a den/staff room with a walk-through closet and a pristine en-suite. Finishing the lower level is a spacious primary suite that overlooks the terrace and park and has custom built-in closets and a windowed en-suite bathroom with marble walls and floors, a large custom vanity, and a windowed walk-in shower. On the upper level of the home are a pair of bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The second bedroom has park views and sits across from a marble bathroom, while the third bedroom/library features walnut wood panels, a full wet bar with a drawer fridge/freezer, and a private en-suite marble bathroom. In excess of 3,000 sq. ft., the rooftop terrace is an oasis unto itself, adorned with several lounge, dining, and sunbathing areas, a built-in pergola with a retractable solar shade, an outdoor TV, integrated lighting and speakers, and 360-degree views of Central Park, and the city skyline. Both terraces also feature irrigated planters with lush greenery. Additional home highlights include central A/C, an in-home washer/dryer, an alarm system, and state-of-the-art Crestron Home Automation for audio/visual, lighting, and solar/blackout shades. Situated directly on Central Park, 880 Fifth Avenue is a gorgeous Emery Roth building with full-service lobby, elevator, and maintenance, staff and thoughtful amenities. Residents enjoy an Art Deco lobby, a verdant courtyard garden, 24-hour on-site parking, common laundry, private storage, and a modern fitness center with a full range of training equipment.

Three Beds in Upper East Side


Upper East Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
